Families are moving into modern new homes in North Wootton thanks to a redevelopment programme by Freebridge Community Housing.

The housing association has replaced old prefabricated houses in Priory Road with nine new, thermal efficient properties, with a mix of two and three bedroom houses and one bedroom flats.

The homes mark the second phase of development Freebridge has carried out in Priory Road.

Lewis Pratt and Georgia Long, along with their one-year-old daughter Harper, have swapped a one bedroom property in Anmer Road for one of the new  two bedroom homes.

Mr Pratt said: “Once we had Harper everything had to change. When this home came up it was a shock, neither of us ever thought we would be so lucky to end up in a place like this. It’s a better area for families, we’ve already been able to take the buggy out on walks in the woods.”

Freebridge Community Housing chairman, Andy Walder, added: “Having the chance to meet the family and hearing what it means to them to have such a fantastic new home, really does do so much to highlight the importance of the work we do at Freebridge.

“We are passionate about developing homes and creating opportunities for people within West Norfolk and will continue to support the needs of the community.”
